Interference check
Use interference checking to scan your Revit model for collisions between elements.


Worksharing distributes the power of the parametric building modeling environment across the project team.


Revit Server
Revit Server helps project teams in different locations to more easily collaborate on shared Revit models across a wide-area network (WAN).


Vault integration
Vault Collaboration software is designed to work with Revit.


Autodesk 360 integration
Building Design Suite Premium and Ultimate customers who have Maintenance Subscription can access integrated Autodesk 360 features, including rendering and energy analysis.


IFC certification
Autodesk supports BIM interoperability. Revit 2015 has been certified by BuildingSMART International for IFC version 2×3 Coordination View import and export.


Bidirectional links, multiple analysis packages
The structural analytical model in Revit software can be bi-directionally linked with Robot Structural Analysis Professional software.


Software for BIM design

Revit® software delivers design features or architects, MEP engineers, structural engineers, and construction contractors. View BIM design features that make it an ideal solution for the entire building project team.


Trim/Extend Multiple Elements NEW
Trim / Extend has been updated to enable for box selection of multiple elements.


Family Parameter Order Adjustment NEW
Easily adjust the Family Parameter order to company standards.


Reinforcement for parts NEW
Add reinforcement to concrete parts.


Presentation for Rebar Sets NEW
Document multiple rebar within a host, only showing a representative subset, allowing the creation of legible reinforcement documentation.


Structural Section Properties NEW
Now Structural Framing elements can be identified by their section type, containing consistent and unambiguous definition of sectional properties.


Calculation methods for pressure drop NEW
Calculate pressure drop for duct and pipe using either Haaland or Colebrook equations in Mechanical Settings.


Tooltips for Family Parameters NEW
Improve learnability by customizing Revit MEP tooltips and communicating parameters and their use.


Accuracy of “as-built” Model Definition NEW
New capabilities and features enable precise definition and placement of structural framing elements in space.


Assembly Code Settings NEW
New Manage Assembly Code Setting dialog allows user to change UniformatClassifications.txt location.


Pinned elements enhancements NEW
Pinned elements are prevented from being deleted unless you specify. Elements must be unpinned before they can be deleted.


Temporary view templates
Minimize the need for saving and maintaining working views. This feature allows you to change view properties without affecting the saved view state.


Autodesk Exchange
Autodesk Exchange enables you to access extended Revit functionality and an expanded content library.


Parametric components
Parametric components, also known as families, are the basis for all building components designed in Revit.


Bidirectional associativity
In Revit, all model information is stored in one place. Any information that gets changed is effectively changed throughout the Revit model.


Conceptual design tools
Revit software offers easy-to-use conceptual design tools that support your creative flow.


HVAC/electrical design room color-fill plans
Communicate design intent visually with room color-fill plans.


Piping and electrical content
Many types of electrical content—including communications, fire safety, data, and nurse call—are available from within Revit.


System browser
Gain greater flexibility during design, and focus on the systems that are important to you with the system browser feature.


Enhanced MEP systems
Create and name custom duct and piping system types.


Sloped piping
In Revit software for MEP engineering, sloped piping tools support enhanced productivity for piping design.


Multiple materials modeling
Revit software for structural engineering includes building materials such as steel, cast-in-place concrete, pre-cast concrete, masonry, and wood.

Software for BIM documentation

Revit® software delivers tools that support documentation needs in architectural design, MEP engineering, structural engineering, and construction. View BIM documentation features that make it an ideal solution for the entire building project team.


Enhanced Hidden lines NEW
Parameter to control the visibility of Hidden Lines in your views.
